Broadening language provision to create independent and engaged language learners
Language Futures is an exciting initiative for creative languages departments interested in developing languages beyond the classroom. It works in tandem with the languages provision already in place in school, and is not designed to ‘teach’ a language, but to equip students with the skills to develop as independent learners supported by school, home and a language proficient mentor from the community.
The Language Futures approach puts young people in control to create a deep sense of engagement in their learning. It helps students to feel motivated and to see the relevance of their language learning by tapping into their own personal interests and lives outside of school.
